  1. Got an email yesterday, notifying that SkyRide won't be available on Carnival Vista Aug 24 2019 sailing due to maintenance. This feature was a key element when my kids selected this sailing. Carnival did not offer any compensation or supplement activity.
  2. So I sailed on the Vista last Oct and just booked the Horizon for Feb. For those that have sailed both, what things did you find different on each one. Anything you like more on one vs the other? We enjoyed the Vista but definitely looking forward to the Horizon.
  3. Is carnival vista looking "tired" and in need of a refurbishment? we sailed breeze right before refurbishment and i was grosses out by the ship (things like windows with hair and dirt/grime all over them by the pool). I was considering the vista but want to make sure it looks "clean" so to speak. Thanks in advance.
  4. I'm a tad confused by the description of the pixel photo package offered on Carnival Vista. It states that for 99.98 you can; Take as many photos as you like, then choose up to 5 of your favorite photos for professional printing on-board, and one photo of the five selected for a 16”x 20” canvas portrait. For purchases made on the Horizon, Vista, Magic, Breeze or Conquest, Pixels package includes 5 digital files with one of the five printed on a 16x20 canvas. And then goes on to state; Vista, Horizon, Panorama, Breeze, Conquest, and Magic offer digital files only. All other ships print size of 5” x 7”, 6” x 9”, 8” x 10” Does this mean you only get 5 digital photos and no printed photos except for the canvas? Or does it mean you get both the 5 printed and the 5 digital with the Canvas? Can someone who has purchased this package on the Vista please fill me in.
  5. I can upgrade my standard balcony to a spa balcony on the Vista for $100. The location I have & the new one are both good but with the Vista not having the Thelassatherapy pool is is really worth it? The Carnival website is not really clear on what types of specialty climate rooms (Thermal Suites) Cloud 9 offers on this ship. Are they elegant, quiet, & free from kids running around? We probably will not buy spa treatments and the free metabolic testing, yoga, & pilates classes included with the room will go unused. We love the Spa staterooms & Thermal Suites on Celebrity Cruises but have not experienced them on Carnival.
  6. We're booked on the Vista in September. It's 5 of us (3 adults, 2 kids). We have 2 balcony rooms (deck 6), but my DH keeps asking if we should've booked a family harbor suite (cove balcony, deck 2). Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
  7. My husband and I have decided to take a last minute cruise on the Vista. There are very few cabins left. One cabin we are considering is 11267. Below are cabins so no problem there. Above it looks like it could be on the edge of water works. Is it located just far enough away that we won’t hear a lot of noise above? I know water works is closed at night but worry about the deck being cleaned early in the morning and hearing kids running all day long. Also on the deck plans it shows a solid line indicating there aren’t doors on deck 11 leading out to the open air deck that looks down on the pool. Is this correct or are there doors there? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you
  8. Does anyone by chance have a recent Camp Ocean schedule for either or both the 2 year olds and the 6 year olds? Thanks in advance!
  9. Is there a hanging swing chair on the aft cabin balcony like I see on the side balcony Havana cabins.
  10. Just booked the Vista for November after a ~5 year hiatus from Carnival (and nearly as long from cruising, had several major land/air vacations crossed off the bucket list). Two questions: 1) Camp Ocean - do they have any activities on embarkation day, or is it only registration on embarkation day then activities start at 10am on the first sea day out? The photos/videos I see of the Penguin room and the description of the activities sound like my son is going to LOVE them! 2) What are the water park's hours on sea days (in good weather)? 3) Does the Vista's Serenity deck get a lot of noise from the lido further aft? I remember this being an issue on some older Carnival ships. Vista looks amazing, looking forward to the cruise no matter what the answers are! Thanks!
  11. Embarkation and departure of the Carnival Vista from Puerta Maya last week
  12. Here is a link to a story about issues with Sky Ride. https://www.cruisehive.com/carnival-cruise-ship-feature-remains-closed-until-further-notice/33341
  13. Please respond if you used this service only on this ship, Leaving our son at home and I wish to FaceTime him everyday after school, does the internet work well with FaceTime apple phones? I no the service can be spotty at times but very important to us to check on him and my mother. Please advise if you have been able to do this. Some post mention as facebook talking we will do some text talking of course but I am interested in FaceTime. Thank You all for your help. Janet
  14. Has anyone ever booked vista cabin 7278 or 7280? These balcony cabins are right outside the IMAX theater. Just wondering about the loud bass that comes with those IMAX shows Looked thru 10 pages of cabins In above thread, could find nothing. Thanks!
  15. Can one get a latte at the atrium bar? if not what is the closest location to the atrium where a latte can be purchased oh and how early does the atrium bar open?
  16. So, what's available for lunch on Vista on Embarkation Day? I am not fond of the Lido under normal circumstances; the ED congestion makes that a non-starter if I can avoid it! Since we booked late, we do not have FTTF, so won't be boarding until noon. Any suggestions?
  17. Hello all, This is my first review and my first cruise in over 6 years. This won't be an overly picture heavy review, but will be told from a point of view of a twin toddler parent. I may be a little slow getting the review out, so please bear with me.😁 Preview: I booked this cruise just over 2 years ago as a seven day cruise leaving from Galveston on Palm Sunday and returning on Easter Sunday with stops in Belize, Roatan, and Cozumel. Two itinerary changes later, it turned to an 8 day with an extra port(Costa Maya), then moved up our day in Cozumel from the last port to the first. It took a little bit of work to get the whole family excited to go, but once we got to the 40 day mark, things got real. Not only were my dear wife and twin toddler boys(THE BOISES!) going, we were also bringing my mother in law, and grandma as well. We all live together, so why not travel together........ Anyway, off to bed, need to return to the money maker in the morning. Next will be the great Embarkation Debacle!!! So stay tuned.
  18. ETA in Freeport is the afternoon of the 12th. Looks like she will round Key West before the potential tropical system winds up in the northern Gulf this week.
  19. Where is the best place to have a latte and people watch
  20. Title pretty much says it all. We are currently booked in a Havana Aft View Extended Balcony. I was browsing and noticed a Havana Premium Vista Balcony cabin is available two doors over from our current cabin. Is worth upgrading to? We are sailing for my 50th birthday with several other people and I'm thinking the larger balcony would be a nice option for gatherings during the week or for just hanging out as there are three sea days on our itinerary.
  21. Thanks in advance for any help. Can you tell me if they still have a light breakfast available each morning in the Ocean Plaza area? Also do they still do the Salad bar in the Ocean Plaza area for Lunch? Which Dining room is anytime dining? Many Thanks
  22. We were fortunate to sail 7 days thanksgiving cruise on Vista. I usually keep all fun times and schedules. Hopefully they are helpful for future cruisers!
  23. I enjoyed reading many detailed reviews on Cruise critic leading up to our first cruise. Some of my favorite reviews are by Bimmer09 , Meatloafsfan, Willdra to name a few. Since this is my first review, I'm sure I won't do as good a job with it but hopefully it will be of some help to someone who is planning a Carnival Cruise. For the last couple of years I've been reading all about cruising, the different cruise lines and what they offer, but I really didn't expect to get to go on one. I'm a teacher and my schedule is pretty easy but with my husband's work he has a hard time planning anything very far in advance. We usually find out at the last minute that he will be able to take off for a couple of days so just go somewhere within driving distance from our home in Oklahoma- so Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana. Last summer he planned to take off so we could go on an actual vacation and things kept coming up and preventing us from knowing if we could go or not. We planned on flying to Florida but we never could make airline reservations due to this, so we ended up driving to Florida. Anyway, I kept looking at cruises for Spring Break when my two boys and I would be out of school and he told me to go ahead and book it and he would pay for it. I really didn't want to go without him but he encouraged me to go ahead. Our oldest son is a high school senior and will graduate this year and he said we need to take him now before he starts college and gets too busy to be able to go. Around the same time, one of my co-teachers decided to take her daughter who is also a senior in high school on a cruise for her 18th birthday. So we talked about it and I told my husband she was going and I wanted to book a cruise with her because I'd feel better having another adult I know there with me. It was her first cruise too and she was also a little nervous about booking one. She knew of a travel agent who was a local lady with a Facebook page. We both messaged her and "K" ended up going through her but I just booked my trip through carnival. It was only a couple of weeks before the sailing date when we booked and there weren't many cabins left and the travel agent said it was too late for her to get any onboard credit for us so I didn't really think it would make any difference if I booked through her or on my own. K got an interior cabin on deck 6 and I got a Family Harbor interior on deck 2 as there wasn't anything left on deck 6 when I finally decided to book a few days after she did. I got the Family Harbor room for the same price as a regular interior and I was kind of excited about being near the lounge and having breakfast options so close to our cabin. Since I had never cruised before I had all sorts of worries that ended up going away soon after we were on board. My older son is a sleepy head and I was afraid I wouldn't want to leave him alone in the cabin asleep to go get breakfast with my younger son, but figured with the lounge right down the hall, we could just go down there and grab something to take to the room. As I said, this all changed after we were on board. I guess you could say we felt fairly safe in our environment and Alex would go to the room without us and my younger son Austin and I would stay out exploring or hanging out. That's all for now. I will continue my review later. Until then, here is a picture I took when we first parked at EZ Parking in Galveston. Do you believe in love at first sight?
  24. Does anyone know if Carnival will be offering tours of the new azipods? I am going to be on the 8/24 sailing and am somewhat interested in how they work.
